You can park on the road, this is now a parking!Then find the small trail and walk down to the beach.
A beautiful bay, a sort of frontier.The beach is 15km from the city of l'île-Rousse, so it's in the middle of nowhere (except in July and August of course!): after the beach, you can visit 'the Agriates desert', there are also waves to ride.
Good shore break for bodyboarders even when it's small; when the waves begin to break 100m from the shore, it could be a nice spot, but it's depend on the sandbars at the rivermouth.

in love with the beach of peraiola - it's the nicest beach i ever been to. not crowded. if you like nature and wilderness the beach is exactly the right choice. if've been there now 12 times and always fascinated. the waves are cool for body boarding, but sometimes the current is very strong. 1 time i get rescued, but now i know the dangerous places. if you are new there you have to be careful. sometimes the waves break from the left and the right side. all in all a place i don't wanna miss. i'm a corsica freak!
